Traian T. Coșovei (Romanian pronunciation: [traˈjan koʃoˈvej]; 28 November 1954 in Polovragi – 1 January 2014 in Bucharest) was a Romanian poet. He was a member of the Writers' Union of Romania.

The son of writer Traian Coșovei and Maria Urdăreanu, he graduated from the Department of Romanian Language and Literature in 1979.[1] He wrote a thesis on the Beat Generation.[2]

A so-called "80s Generation" writer,[3] he was a member of the "Monday Literary Circle" led by Nicolae Manolescu, and of the literary circle led by Ovid S. Crohmălniceanu.[4]

Coșovei's literary debut came in 1978 with the publication of a story in the magazine Literary Romania. The following year, he began editing the Romanian Paper. In 1980 he became a member of the Writers' Union of Romania. In 1996 he was appointed in the National Museum of Romanian Literature, Bucharest, a job he held until his death.[2]

Coșovei died on 1 January 2014, at the age of 59.[5]
